- One 5ft Cat.6 flat patch cable
- Choice of 5VDC US or International Power Supply
- Free developer access to RealTime.io Cloud Services
The evaluation board exposes the serial UART as a USB connection, so you can easily send and receive serial messages to and from a web service using a terminal application. Each pin on the Iota Ethernet or Iota Wi-Fi module are broken out for easy access to standard female strip terminals on the evaluation board and include:
- 12 GPIO pins
- Pins that are individually configurable as Digital Input or Digital Output
- Eight pins with 10 bit Analog Input capability
Common configuration pins are tied to a DIP switch and jumpers to get started quickly. The status indicators of the Iota Ethernet or Iota Wi-Fi are wired to LEDs to visualize network and cloud state of the Iota.
Please note that the Iota Evaluation Kit is NOT compatible with the free ioBridge dashboard that comes with the IO-204 or Gamma Web Gateways. This solution is designed for customers who wish to build their own user interfaces using the RealTime.io API with or without ioBridge's development services.
The Iota modules, that are soldered onto the Evaluation Kit's printed circuit board, are currently not available separately for purchase on the ioBridge store but are available in volume by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on the volume the Iota is available as a module or as a licensed firmware library. The Iota Evaluation kit includes a RealTime.io Developer license. For commercial use Iota and RealTime.io is available as follows:
1a) Iota module with included Iota firmware and commercial use royalty fee per module, or
1b) Iota firmware with customer manufactured hardware and commercial use royalty fee per device.
2) ioBridge hosted RealTime.io server fee including maintenance and support.
Please contact sales@ioBridge.com for pricing and additional details.
